Why aren’t you happy Skye?
Why why why
What’s on your mind 
What’s missing that you want to find? 
Why do you still want to cry?
Why oh why? 

Why can’t you enjoy today? 
What’s standing in your way?
What would make you feel ok?
What’s unsaid that you feel you need to say?
Why do you regularly sigh?
Why oh why?

What’s making you overthink?
Why do you care so much about what others think?
Why do bad opinions of you make you sink?
Why do you have to always assume there’s a dodgy link?
Is it helpful 
Seeing the cup as half full?
Why do you sometimes want to die?
Why oh why?

Why focus on the rough
Rather than accept you are good enough?
Does comparing you to someone else 
Make you happier in your self?
Owning an achievement 
Does not make you arrogant
Why can’t you just be proud
And stop caring that you are opinionated or loud?
I think pain you just need to say goodbye
And open your wings and just fly!
